Michelle will lead us and speak. It will be a communion service where members of the congregation will be able to receive in one kind only (wafers, this time). We will come up as individuals to receive, socially distanced, and take our wafer back to our chair to consume, all eating at the same time. Michelle will drink some wine on behalf of us all.

Community Easter Trail (5-11/4)
Heulwen, youth-worker from Nailsea Baptist Church, says:

‘We are super excited to let you know that Christians Together in Nailsea and District have put together a Community Easter Adventure & Puzzle Trail. It will take place on the first week of the Easter Holidays (5-11th April 2021).

‘A map will be uploaded around Good Friday (to the Nailsea Community Facebook page), alongside the answer sheets, giving you plenty of time to think about how you’ll tackle the trail from the 5th. Alternatively you will be able to pick up an answer sheet that has the map on the back at Location 1 which will be the Nailsea Community Larder.

‘If you have any questions about this Community Easter Adventure Trail & Puzzle, please follow this link to fill out a query form: https://forms.gle/tCBQwSoQcMy6QFYMA

Annual Church Meeting (9/5)
Ceri reminds us that if you normally produce a report for the Annual Church Meeting she would like to receive it this month. Although it doesn’t seem long since the last ACM (because it was delayed) the next one will be on Sunday May 9th, after church.

The Thursday Zoom sessions have now come to an end. Our final reflection is based on this verse:

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Gal 5:1)

 

Future Ministry
A message from Simon and Lindsay:

Further to our recent email if you would like to contribute ideas or suggestions (and haven’t done so already) as to the qualities you would like to see in our next vicar, could you please do this by next Tuesday, 6 April at the latest. You can do this by replying to Pauline’s original email of 26 March, as she has kindly agreed to collate responses for us.

Safety Protocol for Church Services
Arrive five minutes in advance of the service only. Use the one way system. Come in through the lobby (one family at a time). Sanitise hands. Take places. Wear masks. As we are keeping fresh air circulating I suggest warm clothes.

If you need to get up and leave please follow the same one-way system. Try not to walk in front of the cameras.

If you use the loos please clean them yourself afterwards. Cleaning stuff will be around.

After the service, if you do not wish to stay for cleaning and packing, please leave promptly, sanitising your hands as you go. Leave through the fire exit door at the far side of the hall.

Your name needs to be with the service leader for track and trace purposes. This information will be retained for three weeks.

Please try to book in good time. The current limit is about 25 people, depending on how many are families/couples/singles. First come first served.
